, i've been involved with the television casting programs in britain. no question that does help. the fundamental thing is doesn't matter who you are or what you are that you do want to go out to some kind of live event and people like the idea. even if it's going to a restaurant. they can't just sit over their computers all day and play endless games and twitter all the time. people actually do like the thought of going to a space where they hear the reaction of other people. and they can hear, if you're part of a communal experience in the theater. >> many of your colleagues in the world of theater, you're not remotely snobbish about talent shows. you've been a judge on shows in britain. you've been a mentor to "american idol." what is your view of them? can they produce bona fide a stars, do you think? >> of course they can. the real thing which i found in britain, more difficult to do here because it's such a big country that people think it's, if i live in san francisco why would i vote for a girl who might be going to the "wizard of oz" or broadway. that's a different thing

programs in britain. no question that does help. but the fundamental thing is that it doesn't matter who you are, what you are, that you do want to go out to some kind of live event and people like the idea. they can't sit in front of their computers and play games and twitter all the time. people actually do like the thought of going to a space where they hear the reaction of other people and they can hear -- you're part of a communal experience in the theater. >> how about many of your colleagues in the theater. you're not snobbish about talent shows. you've been a judge on shows. you've been a mentor on "american idol". can they produce bona fide stars? >> yes, they can. and the real thing which i found in britain, more difficult to do here, of course, because it's such a big country, people think it's odd why if i live in san francisco vote for a girl who might be going to the "wizard of oz" on broadway. kids were coming from background where they couldn't see me in an audition. >> you saw that on "american idol" when you mentored that as well. you would see these kids that come from

like this? and as rupert murdoch prepares to address members of parliament in britain tomorrow, how serious is this moment for him and his company? >> it's dreadfully serious for rupert murdoch, his family and his company. the company itself i don't think is in jeopardy. it's the second or third largest media company in the world, but murdoch's aura of invincibility is gone. his lieutenants are apples falling from the tree. his argument it was a few rotten apples is discredited. it's really a barrel problem. he has to deal with that, and he knows in coming days, not just in his testimony tomorrow, but in coming days, there will be more apples that will be revealed to have been rotten. he has a lot to answer for. >> i can say from my experience, editing a newspaper for him and this was, five, six years before any of this phone hacking began, but certainly when i worked for him, he wanted his editors toagl of the things would you expect from a tabloid newspaper, but always to operate within the law. and i find it impossible, personally knowing the man, to think he would have known abo

, i think the media in britain would assume that that meant he felt that she was probably guilty of other offenses. is it similar in america in that sense? i mean wob would you assume with your legal brain that he was making a point there? >> i think he might be. it's tough to know. this was certainly, remember, the crimes here we're talking about are lying to the authorities, and these were pretty egregious. meaning she did send the authorities on a wild goose chase, which is a horrible thing to do, and as a result, you could make an argument that it deserved the maximum punishment. but i agree with you, that i think there's something more at play here, for this judge to give the maximum, meaning a year on each of the four counts, and then say she has to serve them consecutively, one after the other, is a very stiff sentence for this crime. >> yeah. and i think quite telling. i'm about to interview the prosecutor, jeff ashton, who was pretty shocked by what happened. if you were about to talk to him, dan, what would you say to him? >> i guess one of the things i would want to kn

the color. it's a beautiful day. it's the warmest day here. >> the warmest day in britain for five days. you brought the heat, lady. >> yes. >> what i'm fascinated with your new album the fact you took this year off. this is a woman who has worked so hard in the way that your parents did before you. when you have this year off, what did you learn about yourself? >> i learned a lot about myself. the biggest thing i learned is i love to perform. i love music. i love what i do. i love singing in the studio and writing songs and coming up with video treatments to the point that during that year i do not count the 72 songs i recorded as work because it's what i was born to do and i learned balance. i learned the importance of taking time for myself and i was moving around so much that i had no idea that i really have 16 grammys, like i've heard that and i got up and accepted my awards, but i didn't realize what an amazing accomplishment that was. >> you never had time presumably. it's just this treadmill. the more successful you get the less time you have to enjoy anything. >> exactly. >> so fina

after world war ii, many historians will point to the suez crisis where britain was involved in an action we told them not to be involved in and britain said, no, we're going forward with our interest there and america threatened using economic policy because we held so much of their debt. i am scared of the day america -- foreign policy will be affected by those people who hold our debt and they will be able to reign control over us. this is very crucial. >> if i could go on that, we know who you're talking about, china already owns more than a quarter of america's debt. that's a staggering amount of debt to be held by one nation. at the moment, they haven't flexed their muscles in the way you just discussed but they could, couldn't they? >> absolutely. that's what i worry about. i think the future of foreign policy is going to be even more, i think it already is, even more controlled by economic interests and economic strength. that's why america should be focusing in my opinion and i think often like the president says, healing our economy and strengthening our nation econ

play for ireland, i can play for great britain. it's a tough one. i mean it's -- and it's always going -- i'm always going to have to answer that and deal with that question because of where i grew up. you know, i regard myself as northern irish and that's all i can really say. >> that's probably the diplomatic answer, isn't it? >> yeah, it would have to be. >> did you have a tough upbringing, would you say? did you have much money as a family? >> no. no, not at all. my mom and dad worked very hard to give me the best chance not just in golf but in life. you know, i was an only child, you know, my dad worked three jobs at one stage. my mom worked night shifts in a factory. >> what did they do? >> my dad was a bar manager and worked in separate places, you know, in the daytime and then in the night. and my mom worked in a factory that produced tape and sort of industrial goods and she worked night shift in there. so they worked very hard. and i -- being so young, you're sort of oblivious to it all, and it's only when you become a little older and a little wiser that you realize how much

book. he's a fascinating character. you know, i mean, my knowledge of the hulk is even in britain this guy was huge, physically, on television, as a box office star. how would you sum up marriage to the hulk? >> well, we were married for 24 years. and you know, it was great. i mean, honestly, i never dreamed that we would end up having the lifestyle that we did. when i met him, he was in the "rocky 3" movie, and i thought that he was an actor playing a wrestler because in california back then wrestling wasn't even on tv, and i didn't know what it was. i was like, you wrestle? like what is that? so -- but you know, soon after we started going out. we got married, and i went on the road with him, and i learned. i realized what all was involved. and it's quite a job. i mean, especially working with the wwf. that was a huge empire that, you know, became even bigger. rock and roll. it was like being married to a rock star. >> and of course as the book details his behavior became pretty similar to that of most rock stars. i mean, let's be brutally frank. you know, you had to go through
